The Oden has a bad reputation in the Call of Duty community and, while it may not be the best gun in the game, it can pack a real punch when paired with the right attachments. Here, we break down two of the strongest Oden loadouts that you can use in both Warzone and Modern Warfare.

While Modern Warfare’s meta may change with every new patch and weapon update, the Oden has always remained towards the bottom of the rankings. This high-power assault rifle may be able to dish out some dizzying damage numbers, but its slow rate of fire and unwieldy recoil let it down in most firefights.

As a result, many Call of Duty players simply avoid using this assault rifle altogether – instead opting for more reliable rifles like the M4A1 and Grau. However, if you’re looking to get your hands on the highly sought after Damascus weapon camo or simply wish to try out this underdog weapon, then you’ll want to equip these loadout attachments.

  • Colossus Suppressor
  • Oden Factory 810mm
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Ranger Foregrip
  • Granulated Grip Tape

This loadout build for the Oden may look absolutely monstrous in terms of its overall size, but these bulky attachments are necessary if you wish to truly unleash this assault rifle’s lethal long-range rounds. The Oden may not have a tremendous amount of speed on its side, but it does have an incredible amount of power. 

First up is the Colossus Suppressor. This lengthy attachment helps increase the Oden’s effective range and reduces the gun’s vertical recoil. If that wasn’t enough, the Factory 810mm levels up this range even further, while also enhancing its bullet velocity and recoil control.

The reduction in vertical recoil means that the VLK 3.0X Optic can be used to great effect, giving you the precision needed to land the Oden’s high-damage rounds.

Of course, if you have the Black ASP weapon blueprint from Season 3, then you can utilize this version of the Oden instead. Unlike the standard Oden, the Black ASP features a clean iron sight, effectively giving you more recoil reduction options should you wish to not run an optic. 

Both the Ranger Foregrip and Granulated Grip Tape improve vertical recoil and general aiming stability, keeping the Oden way more controllable during those long firing sessions. You’ll still need to drag down on your mouse or analog stick to keep it accurate, but these attachments do drastically minimize the weapon’s atrocious kick.

The Oden may not be the best assault rifle in Modern Warfare, but it certainly deals a lot of damage with this setup.
  • Colossus Suppressor
  • Oden Factory 810mm
  • Commando Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand

The Colossus Suppressor and Factory 810mm are the two core attachments of most Oden loadouts, so we recommend keeping these equipped if you wish to increase your kill potential. While you may not need the extra range on Modern Warfare’s smaller multiplayer maps, these attachments drastically reduce the vertical recoil, giving you the precision needed to land those all-important headshots and body shots.  

Equipping the Commando Foregrip will allow you to hold down the trigger without the Oden kicking all over the place, while the Stippled Grip Tape keeps you mobile. After all, Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer matches are extremely fast, so having an attachment that speeds up your ADS and sprint to fire speed is always going to be beneficial. 

Lastly, the Sleight of Hand perk helps to keep your lethal rounds flying and drastically reduces the downtime between each reload. Of course, you could always utilize either the 25-Round or 30-Round Mags, but we found the decrease in mobility and impact on ADS speed not worth the trouble.

The Oden may be Modern Warfare’s underdog assault rifle, but both these loadouts demonstrate just how devastating it can be.

Best Fennec loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The Fennec has now been out for a few months, but you’ll still need to equip the right attachments if you truly wish to master this lightening fast SMG. Here, we break down two of the strongest Fennec loadouts you can use.

The Vector, now known as the Fennec, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2. Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, lightweight, and insanely fast rate of fire –  the Fennec is an absolute beast of a gun. In fact, this deadly machine gun is so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye. 

This zippy SMG hasn’t taken the crown away from the MP5, but the Fennec is still a popular choice. For many, this weapon is still a go-to, particularly in close-quarters where hyper-aggressive play is rewarded. In order to help you get the most out of the Fennec, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate the competition in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Best Fennec loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.
  • ZLR18” Deadfall 
  • Merc Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s large scale map may favor long to medium range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s hip fire, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added distance. 

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also ups your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision it needs when going for those all-important body shots and headshots. While this attachment increases your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Sleight of Hand perk. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed and giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Infinity Ward/DexertoThis loadout absolutely obliterates players in close-quarter firefights.
  • ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

This build is all about melting your opponents in close-quarters combat. The Tac Laser drastically lowers the Fennec’s ADS speed and increases overall stability, while also allowing you to maintain a steady walk while aiming. 

Being able to quickly take care of enemy threats without needing to ADS is a godsend, particularly on smaller maps like Shipment and Rust, where you’ll constantly find yourself running into enemy players. 

Lastly, the Merc Foregrip will also increase your recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to quickly fire off the Fennec’s blisteringly fast rounds with deadly precision. Foregoing the stock for this build will give you a slight boost in movement speed for quicker reaction to get away from players, while The ZLR 18” Deadfall and 40 Round Drum Mags should always be a top priority for any Fennec players looking to increase their kill potential, so always try to build your loadout around these core attachments.
